ADJUTANT GENERAL'S OFFICE, 

Washington, 2,6th July, 1855. 

Sir, To ensure method and uniformity in the 
transmission of Enlistments, Recruiting Accounts, 
&c. according to Regulations; and perceiving that 
the&e, whicli govern this important service are vari- 
ously interpreted and understood — the following pa- 
ragraphs explanatory, or, as a partial amendment of 
the system, are hereby incorporated with the 74th 
Article of Army Regulations: — 

1st. The Enlistments required to be " forwarded to the of- 
ficer superintending" the recruiting service, anu by him to the 
11 Oince oi the Adjutant General ut the Army" at the end of 
ever) month, will oe endorsee* "implicate" the other, directed 
to be Kept by tne recruiting oincer, " us a voucher in the settle- 
ment oj his accounts, ' toge her with lus account current lor 
bounties anu piennums, &.c. wnl be transmitted airect by him, 
to tne ottice oi the *d Auditor ot the "treasury, and not through 
this olnce. L v ide,Mos. ittb, and 12<b, Army Regulations. J 

td. 1 he name ot each recruit, with the number, date and 
place, will be legibly written on the bacK ot his enlistment, to- 
getiier with the name, rank and regiment ot the recruiting offi- 
cer. All " Duplicate Enlistments," made within tne month, by 
any officer, or at one station will be carefully enveloped, and 
endorsed as herein pi escribed; those to be torwarded direct to 
the olnce ot the Id Auditor, will be similarly secured and in- 
scribed. 

•id The duty enjoined on the " Genei ul Superintendent"* de- 
fined in Mos. iltb, and lz.*6, ot Army Regulations, is precisely 

* The transmission of, 1st " Duplicate Enlistments:" 2d 
Monthly " Roll oi Recruits:" 3o, Monthly " Return of Re-

what is required of " Commanding officers of Regiments" with 
regard to " the recruiting service of their respective commands;" 
the only difference will be, that instead of forwarding the " du- 
plicate enlistment," and accounts for bounties and premiums &.c. 
monthly, he will transmit these to the " Office ot the Adjutant 
General" every fivo months coi responding with the regular pe- 
riodical muster of the troops for payment- 

4tn. Company officers incidentally recruiting, or re-enlisting 
men at their posts, will forward the '* duplicate" to the " com- 
manding officer" ot their respective regiments, and the other,

ADJUTANT GENERATE OFFICE, 

Washington, 7th Jlpril, 1826. 

1 Monthly Returns for the War Department, enjoined by the 

19th Article of War, require the name- of all officers " then / 

absent from their posts, with the reasons for, and the time of, 
thrir absence" to be specified; and the provisions of the 1 3th 
Article enjoin similar specifications of " such officers" as may be 
" absent" from their Regiment or Company, at the stated periods 
of muster. To enable Commanding Officers ot Regiments and 
Companies, to comply with these injunctions, each officer of the 
line of the Army, when "absent," on detached service, shall 
report himself, to the Commanding Officer of his Post, or Com- 
pany, if a Company Officer — and to the Commanding Officer of 
his Regiment, if a Field Officer. ( 

2 These Special Reports required of officers of the line 

when absent on detached service, will be repeated as often as 
their position or the nature of the duty for which they may have 
been detailed, shall be changed.

unless such service shall have been performed for ten consecutive years. If 
the ten years service therefore, " in any one grade" be made up by an 
union of separate and disjointed periods, it would not entitle the Officer to 
Brevet promotion. 

II.... Brevet on brevet for ten years service in any one brevet grade, 
may be conferred when the Officer has performed the appropriate duties of 
his Brevet rank during ten consecutive years. If he should have performed 
duty, or have been mustered in any grade, inferior to his Brevet during 
any portion of a ten years' service, the additional Brevet would not be con- 
ferred. 

III.... If an Officer's rank in the Army be suspended by sentence of a 
General Court Martial, during any period of a ten years' service in one 
grade, he is not eligible to Brevet promotion for the ten years' service 
which may have been so interrupted by the suspension of his rank,

OBBER, S ADJUTANT GENERAL'S OFFICE, 

JVo. 42. I Washington, August 7th, 1828. 



The General-in-Chief has received from the War Department, the fol- 
lowing General Regulations, which are herewith promulgated to the Arm? 
in conformity with the directions of the Secretary of War. 

By order of Major General Macomb: 





Adj. Gen* 



DEPARTMENT OF WAR, 

August Uh, 1828, 

The following alterations in the regulations of the Army, are published 
for the information of those concerned. 

SUTLERS. 

The appointments of all Regimental Sutlers, now in service, will be con- 
tinned up to the 31st of December next, when they will cease; after 
which time, Officers of this description will be appointed only for the 
occasional and temporary purposes, provided for in Army Regulation No, 
364. 

To put an end to the present collisions between Post and Regimental 
Sutlers, arising from the different views entertained, not only by then> 
selves, but by Commanding Officers of Posts, in regard to their relative 
tig!. •-> and privileges, it is declared that Post Sutlers are entitled to the 
exclusive privilege of sutling for all the troops stationed at the posts tc 



2 

Which they are respectively assigned. All future appointments of Post 
Sutlers, will be for four years, unless sooner revoked by special order. 
All existing appointments, of more than two years standing, will expire on 
the 31st of December, 1830, and all others, on the 31st of December, 1832. 
The whole being subject to renewal, at the pleasure of the War Depart- 
ment. 

ASSISTANT ADJUTANTS GENERAL. 

The aide-de-camp of a General Officer, to whom the duties cf an Assist- 
ant Adjutant General are assigned by law, will not consider those duties 
as intermitted by a furlough, or leave of absence, granted to the General, 
but will continue to perform them, during such furlough, or leave of 
absence, This regulation, however, is not intended to forbid the granting 
of furloughs to aides-de-camp, acting as assistant Adjutants General, more 
than to other Officers, when the exigencies of the service will permit. 

As the duties performed in the Offices of the Assistant Adjutants Gen- 
eral of Departments, are of a military and confidential nature, the 
practice of employing citizens as clerks in those offices, will be discontinu- 
ed, and the General Officers having command of separate Departments, 
will be respectively permitted to detail graduates of the Military Academy, 
not exceeding two to each Department, to assist in the execution of such 
duties, and to whom will be allowed, in addition to their regular pay and 
emoluments, the extra pay allowed to Adjutants of Regiments, without 
the forage, and the officers so detailed, will be considered as assistants in 
the Adjutant General's Department, and respected accordingly^ 

ADJUTANTS OP REGIMENTS. 

The practice of taking Adjutants of Regiments, on tours of Inspection, 
having been found to be attended with considerable inconvenience, as well 
as expense to the service, Commandants of Regiments will not hereafter 
order their Adjutants to accompany them on such service, but will leave 
them at the established head quarters of the Regiment, for the purpose of 
facilitating the correspondence, and attending to such regimental details 
as may be required. Should the Commandants require assistance, in in- 
specting any particular post, they will order an Officer of such post to 
attend them for the purpose. 

GENERAL OFFICERS BY BREVET. 

Officers having the rank of General by Brevet, will not hereafter appoint 
aides-de-camp in consequence of holding such rank, without the permission 



of the War Department. Whenever a Brevet General requires an aid-de- 
camp, he will, through the proper channel, communicate the necessity of 
such aid with his reasons for desiring it, that the Secretary of War may 
be enabled to determine on the propriety of granting it.

GENERAX* ©BDE3L3. C ADJUTANT GENERAL'S OFFICE, 

Washington) llth July, 1826. 



Tlie General-in-Chief lias received from the De- 
partment of War, the following Orders: — 

«« The President, with deep regret, announces to the 
Army, that it has pleased the Disposer of all hu- 
man events, in whose hands are the issues of life, 
to remove from the scene of earthly existence our 
illustrious and venerated fellow-citizen, Thomas 
Jefferson". 

This dispensation of Divine Providence, afflicting 
to us, but the consummation of glory to him, oc- 
curred on the fourth of the present month — on the 
Fiftieth Anniversary of that Independence, the De- 
claration of which, emanating from his mind, at 
once proclaimed the birth of a free nation, and of- 
fered motives of hope and consolation to the whole 
family of man. Sharing in the grief which 
every heart must feel for so heavy and afflict- 
ing a public loss, and desirous to express his high 
sense of the vast debt of gratitude which is due to 
the virtues, talents, and ever memorable services of 
the illustrious deceased, the President directs tiiat 
Funeral Honors be paid to him at all the Military 
Stations, and that the Officers of the Army wear 
crape on the left arm, by way of mourning, for six 
months. 

Major-General Brown will give the necessary or- 
ders for carrying into effect the foregoing direc- 
tions." 



" It has become the painful duty of the Secretary of 
"War to announce to the Army the death of another 



& 



2 

distinguished and venerated citizen. John Adams 
departed this life on the 4th of this month. Like 
his compatriot, Jefferson, lie aided in drawing 
and ahly supporting the Declaration of Indepen- 
dence. With a prophetic eye, he looked through 
the impending difficulties of the Revolution, and 
foretold with what demonstrations of joy the An- 
niversary of the birth day of American freedom 
would he hailed. He was permitted to behold the 
verification of his prophesy, and died, as did Jef- 
ferson, on the day of the Jubilee. 

A coincidence of circumstances so wojtnderful, gives 
confidence to the belief that the patriotic efforts of 
these illustrious men were Heaven-directed, and 
furnishes a new seal to the hope, that the prosperity 
of these States is under the special protection of a 
kind Providence. 

The Secretary of War directs that the same funeral 
honors be paid by the Army to the memory of the 
deceased as bv the order of the 7th instant were 

m 

directed to be paid to Thomas Jefferson, and 
the same token of mourning be worn. 
Major General Brown is charged with the execution 
of this order." 



NEVER has it fallen to the lot of a commander to 
announce to any Army such an event as now calls forth 
the mingled grief and astonishment nf this Republic: 
never, since history first wrote the record of time, has 
one day thus mingled every triumphant with every ten- 
der emotion, and consecrated a nation's joy, by blend- 
ing it with the most sacred of sorrows. Yes, Soldiers, 
in one day — almost in the same hour, have two of the 
Founders of the Republic, the Patriarchs of Liberty, 



closed their services to social man, after beholding them 
crowned with the richest, and most unlimited success. 
United in their end, as they had been in their highest 
aim — their toils completed — their hopes surpassed — their 
honors full — and the dearest wish of their bosoms gra- 
tified in death — they closed their eyes in patriot ecstasy, 
amidst the gratulations and thanksgivings of a people, 
on all, on every individual of whom, they had conferred 
the best of all earthly benefits. 

Such men need no trophies; they ask no splendid 
mausoleum. We are their monument: their mausoleum 
is their Country: and her growing prosperity the ama- 
ranthine wreath that time shall place over their dust. 
Well may the Genius of the Republic mourn. If she 
turns her eyes in one direction, she beholds the Hall 
where Jefferson wrote the Charter of her rights; if, 
in another, she sees the City where Adams kindled the 
fires of the Revolution. To no period of our history, 
to no department of our affairs, can she direct her view, 
and not meet the multiplied memorials of her loss, and 
of their glory. 

At the grave of such men, envy dies, and party 
animosity blushes while she quenches her fires. If 
Science and Philosophy lament their enthusiastic votary 
in the halls of Monticello, Philanthrophy and Eloquence 
weep, with no less reason, in the retirement of Quincy. 
And when, hereafter, the stranger performing his pil- 
grimage to the land of freedom, shall ask for the monu- 
ment of Jefferson, his inquiring eye may be directed 
to the dome of that temple of learning, the University of 
his native State — the last labor of his untiring mind — 
the latest, and the favorite gift of a Patriot to his Coun- 
try. 

Bereaved, yet happy America! mourning, yet high- 
ly favored country! too happy, if every son whose loss 






shall demand thy tears can thus soothe thy sorrow by 
a legacy of fame. 

The Army of the United States, devoted to the 
service of the country, and honoring all who are 
alike devoted, whether in the cabinet or the field, will 
feel an honorable and a melancholy pride in obeying 
this order. Let the officers then wear the badge of 
mourning; the poor emblem of a sorrow which words 
cannot express, but which freemen must ever feel while 
contemplating the graves of the venerated Fathers of 

the Republic. 

Tuesday, succeeding the, arrival of this order at 
each Military Station, shall be a day of rest: 

The National Flag shall wave at half mast: 

At early dawn, thirteen guns shall he fired, and at 
intervals of thirty minutes between the rising and setting 
sun, a single cannon will be discharged — 

And at the close of the day, twenty -four rounds. 

By command oj Major- General Brown: 





Adjutant General,

ORDERS. f ADJUTANT GENERAL'S OFFICE, 

No. 54. X Washington, October 12th, 1827. 



1 The Stations of the Artillery Regiments, will be 

changed. This has been determined on as a measure of 
equal justice to all; — as being called for, by the best interests 
of the service, and by the common rule of equity in Military 
detail. It is therefore to be regarded as the commencement 
of a system, promising to the Artillery generally, the ad- 
vantages of a biennial exchange, and to the Garrisons of 
the sickly stations in particular, (on the Southern frontiers,) 
the hope of periodical relief. 

2.... These changes will be made without delay, between 
the 1st and 3d Regiments, and the 2d and 4th Regiments, 
mutually, according to the following arrangement. 

3.... The Companies at the Southern Stations, will not 
vacate their posts, until relieved by others from the North.

4.... Field Officers not on special duty will make corres- 
ponding movements with their Regiments. 

The Head Quarters of the 1st Regiment, will be fixed at 
Charleston Harbour, S. C. 

The Head Quarters of the 2d Regiment, will be fixed at 
Savannah, Ga. 

The Head Quarters of the 3d Regiment, will be fixed at 
Fort Independence, Ms. 

The Head Quarters of the 4th Regiment, will be fixed at 
Fort Columbus, N. Y. 

The Major of the 1st Regiment, will, for the present, be 
stationed at Annapolis, Maryland, and the Lieut. Colonel of 
the 3d, at New London Harbour, Ct. 






5 As the health of the troops during these movements, 

must depend much on the care and attention of the Officers 
of the Medical Department, their attendance will be gen- 
erally required on board the transports. The Surgeons or 
Assistant Surgeons at the Northern Stations, i. e. those of 
the 1st and 2d Regiments, will therefore accompany the 
troops of those Regiments to the South, and return with 
the troops of the 3d and 4th Regiments, who may be relieved 
from thence. 

The Surgeon General will give the necessary instructions 
for the execution of this paragraph in detail, and for the 
ultimate assignment of the Surgeons to their permanent 
Stations. 

6.... The Quarter Master General's Department, will 
furnish the necessary transports and facilities, to carry this 
order into effect. To this Department is also assigned the 
responsibility of securing the* public property, &c. at the 
posts temporarily vacated.

ORDERS. C ADJUTANT GENERAL'S OFFICE, 

No. 62. I Washington, December ISth, 1827. 



The recorded defects and inaccuracies which have been de- 
tected in many of the Muster Rolls, received at General 
Head Quarters within the present year, prove, that there are 
Company Commanders who have " certified " to the accura- 
cy of an important document on the faith of irresponsible 
agents, or that they have been eminently unsuccessful in 
their personal efforts, to be accurate and true. The most 
authentic and minute history of enlisted soldiers, after joining 
the line of the Army, is derived from Company Muster 
Rolls. To perpetuate the true dates of Enlistment ; to 
avoid mustering one present, who is absent; to record the 
dates of all casualties, such as the day on which any member 
of the Company, joins, is transferred, dies, deserts, or is 
apprehended, &c. and to make the tabular exhibit or recapi- 
tulation agree, and correspond with the contents of the 
Muster Roll, it is only necessary that the Officer who com- 
mands the Company, should strictly fulfil the duty he owes 
to himself and the Government, be/ore he ventures to affix 
his name to the certificate prescribed by Regulations. Some 
of these exceptionable records show, that soldiers who were 
enlisted in a certain year, are mustered as having been enlisted 
in a different year, and, that others, who were absent, have 
been mustered present, &c. In other instances, if errors 
and omissions, which have been required to be corrected 



and supplied, be less grave and important, they do not, on 
that account, deserve to escape animadversion.

justice to the enlisted soldier, require that Muster Rolls,

3DEPAHTIOTEKT OP WAR, ? 

February 28th, 1828. $ 

ORDERS. 

The Secretary of War, by direction of the President of 
the United States, announces to the Army the painful in- 
telligence of the decease [the 24th of February] of Major 
General Brown. 

To say that he was one of the men who have rendered 
most important services to his country, would fall far short 
of the tribute due to his character. Uniting with the most 
unaffected simplicity, the highest degree of personal valor, 
and of intellectual energ\ T , he stands pre-eminent before the 
world, and for after ages, in that band of heroic spirits, 
who, upon the ocean and the land, formed and sustained, 
during the second war with Great Britain, the martial re- 
putation of their country. To this high and honorable pur- 
pose General Brown may be truly said to have sacrificed 
his life; for the disease which abridged his days, and has 
terminated his career at a period scarcely beyond the 
meridian of manhood, undoubtedly originated in the hard- 
ships of his campaigns on the Canada frontier, and in that 
glorious wound, which, though desperate, could not remove 
him from the field of battle, till it was won. 

Quick to perceive, sagacious to anticipate, prompt to de- 
cide, and daring in execution, he was born with the qualities 
which constitute a great commander. His military coup 
d'eeuil, his intuitive penetration, his knowledge of men, 
and his capacity to control them, were known to all his 
companions in arms, and commanded their respect, while the 



6 



gentleness of his disposition, the courtesy of his deportment, 
his scrupulous regard to their rights, his constant attention 
to their wants, and his affectionate attachment to their per- 
sons, universally won their hearts, and bound them to him 
as a father. 

Calm and collected in the presence of the enemy, he was, 
withal, tender of human life; in the hour of battle, more 
sparing of the blood of the soldier than his own. In the hour 
of victory, the vanquished enemy found in him a humane 
and compassionate friend; not one drop of blood, shed in 
wantonness or cruelty, sullies the purity of his fame. Defeat 
he was never called to endure; but in the crisis of difficulty 
and danger, he displayed untiring patience and fortitude, 
not to be overcome. 

Such was the great and accomplished captain whose loss 
the Army has now, in common with their fellow citizens 
of all classes, to deplore. While indulging the kindly im- 
pulses of nature, and yielding the tribute of a tear upon his 
grave, let it not be permitted to close upon his bright exam- 
ple, as it must upon his mortal remains. Let him be more 
nobly sepulchred in the hearts of his fellow soldiers, and his 
imperishable monument be found in their endeavors to 
emulate his virtues. 

The officers of the Army will wear the badge of mourn- 
ing for six months on the left arm, and hilt of the sword. 
Guns will be fired at each Military Post, at intervals of 
thirty minutes from the rising to the setting of the sun, on 
the day succeeding the arrival of this order, during which 
the National Flag will be suspended at half mast. 

JAMES BARBOUR.

HEAD QUARTERS OF THE ARMY OF THE U. S. 

Washington, 29th May, 1828. 

ORDER. 7 

No. 24. 7 5 

Major General Alexander Macomb, by virtue of his 
appointment, and the Orders of the President of the United 
States, assumes the command of the Army. 

Aware of the high responsibility which is imposed upon 
him, and the difficulties attendant on his station, the Major 
General enters on the duties of his office with diffidence, 
and feels that it will scarcely be possible to fulfil the object 
of his appointment, unless he be seconded by that enlighten- 
ed zeal and intelligence, which have hitherto characterized 
the Officers of every grade in the Army of the United 
States. He therefore indulges the hope, that he will 
find in the general and other superior Officers, in com- 
mand of the troops, as well as in those composing the 
General Staff, a cordial co-operation in maintaining that 
order, discipline and economy throughout the service, 
without which, the Military Establishment, can be neither 
useful nor creditable to the Republic. 

First Lieutenant Samuel Cooper of the 4th Regiment of 
Artillery, and First Lieutenant W. M. Boyce of the 1st 
Regiment of Infantry, are hereby appointed Aides de Camp 
to the Major General. They will proceed to Head Quar- 
ters, and report themselves accordingly. 




Major General Commanding. 






HEAD QUARTERS OP THE ARMY. 

ORDER C ADJUTANT GENERAL'S OFFICE, 

.Ac. 26. I Washington, June 10M, 1828. 



Doubts having arisen as to the right of Command, when 
detachments have been ordered under the general direction 

and superintendence of Staff or Engineer Officers, to execute 
certain works; such for instance, as opening roads and other 
communications, constructing bridges, procuring forage or 
fuel, or materials for constructing quarters and the like — 
The General-in-Chief has thought it expedient to explain 
the relative duties of the Officers of the Staff, or of the En- 
gineers ordered to superintend the work, and the Officer 
of the line, detailed with the detachment to execute the 
work : 

1 Officers of the Staff or Engineers, directed to su- 
perintend the execution of any service like that above men- 
tioned, will have no more control over the troops, than is 
allowed by paragraph 445 of General Regulations, to which 
those interested, are referred. 

2 It is the duty of the Staff or Engineer Officer, to point 

out what is to be done, and it is the duty of the Officer hav- 
ing charge of the detachment, to execute the work accord- 
ingly; the Command of the Troops, is with the Officer of 
the line, unless otherwise specially ordered, according to 
the nature of the case. 

By order of Major General Macomb: 





Adj. Gen* 



OHDER. i ADJUTANT GENERAL'S OFFICE, 

No. 49. I Washington, August 30th, 1828. 



To avoid the great inconvenience to which the service has sometimes 
been subjected, in consequence of delayed reports of the departure and 
arrival of troops, and of other events o;ident to changes in Commands 
when Hosts have been ordered to be relieved, or abandoned, the General-in- 
Chief directs the observance of the following regulations : 

I.... Whenever a Military Post is established or evacuated, and a Garrison 
is re-enforced, diminished or relieved, the Commanding Officer thereof, will 
immediately make a special report of the same to the Adjutant General's 
Office, in which report he will specify the day ot the month on which either 
event may have occurred ; and if the Command or Detachment which may 
have changed its station be less than a Regiment, the particular Company or 
Companies are to be specified. 

II \s often as the Station of any Officer who may be on detached service, 

or of any Company or Detachment not present with the Colours, may be 
changed, such Officer, and the Commanding Officer of such Company, or 
Detachment, will in like manner make a special report to the Commander of 
his Regiment, similar to the one enjoined by the preceding paragraph, in 
order that such occurrences in the history of the Regiment may be known 
to the Colonel, who will direct the same to be recorded on the first Monthly 
Return. 

And the General-in-Chief further directs, that — 

III.... A duplicate of the •« Post Return," required by General Regulations 
for Department Head Quarters, will hereafter, be forwarded to the Adjutant 
General's Office, direct. (Vide No. 876. ) 

IV.. ..The Muster Rolls for the Adjutant General's Office, and which em- 
brace the two months terminating respectively, in June and December, here- 
after, are required to be semi-annual Muster Rolls, 



1/ 



2 

V.... All official communications and returns from Commanders of Regi- 
ments, Detachments, and Posts, intended for the Head Quarters of the Army, or 
for any Military Department, will hereafter be signed by the respective Com- 
manding Officers : and in all official correspondence whatever, the Rank and 
Regiment of the Officer will be annexed to his signature ; and if a Staff Offi- 
Ctr, his title or designation in the Staff, will in like manner be affixed. 

VI.... Each Company shall have at least one Com missioned Officer pre- 
sent for Company duty. If it should happen that any detail for detached 
service may fall upon the only Commissioned Officer present for Company 
duty, he shall be detained until his Colonel or other proper Commander shall 
have transferred a Commissioned Officer to relieve him from the command 
and responsibilities of the Company.

II... .This arrangement of the Artillery is not to interfere with 
the establishment of the School of Practice at Fortress Monroe, 
and the graduates from the Military Academy will repair thi- 
ther agreeably to the orders heretofore given, unless otherwise 
specially directed. 

III.. ..Companies which shall be found deficient upon inspec- 
tions, will be ordered to Fortress Monroe by special direc- 
tion from General Head Quarters, with a view to their improve- 
ment and instruction, as well as such officers, who may be 
found deficient in practical knowledge. 

IV....The commanding officer of the Eastern Department, will 
exercise the same authority over Fortress Monroe, as he does 
over any other post within his command, while there is reserv- 
ed to the General-in-Chief, under the approbation of the War 
Department, the exclusive right to make regulations connected 
with the post as a School of Practice ; all reports and returns 
will be made accordingly, to the General of Department. 

V.. ..Those officers who have heretofore formed the Staff of 
the Artillery School, with the exception of the officers of the 
Quarter Masters, Subsistence, Ordnance, and Medical Depart- 
ments, are by this order relieved, and their places supplied by 
the field and staff officers, composing the garrison under this 
arrangement. 



V[....The library* apparatus, instruments, and other property, 
belonging to the school and to the post, will be turned over to 
the Quarter Master of the post, to be held subject to the orders 
of the relieving officer. 

VII ...The detachment of the 4th Regiment of Artillery, mus- 
tered as a band for the School of Practice, and supported as , 
such by that Institution, will remain at the post, and be consi- 
dered as transferred to the Regiment forming the garrison, and 
will be mustered accordingly, 

VI II.. ..In this distribution of the Artillery, the Commandants 
of Regiments will take a general supervision of their respective 
Regiments, see that the companies are completed in officers and 
men, according to their legal organization, and duly instructed 
and exercised in the duties appertaining to their arm ; in this 
they will be assisted by their field officers. The Captains and 
Subalterns being comfortably quartered with their companies, 
will have every opportunity of perfecting the discipline and in- 
struction of the non-commissioned officers and private soldiers, 
and will be held accountable to their superior officers for the 
state of their respective companies. 

IX. ...The Quarter Master's Department will furnish the ne- 
cessary transportation to carry into effect the movements indi- 
cated in this order, and will make such arrangements for the ac- 
commodation of the troops at the posts respectively to which 
they are ordered, as may be necessary. 

X....The commanding officers of such posts, to which this or- 
der has reference, are charged with the immediate execution of 
it, so far as relates to the troops under their command. 

By Order of Maj. Gen. Macomb.
